No, this is not me attacking torrents or music stealing or anything of that sort.

I just wanted to know if the rumors that Limewire is a haven for virus and other malware is true. I've read in other threads on other forums that Limewire is a dangerous place for keeping you PC malware-free, but wasn't sure on the veracity of this. Since I know some people here use Limewire, could you tell me if this reputation is warranted or not.

I am not using this information for anything other than curiosity, so don't call me a hypocrite.

I dont use it, its basically the noob's torrent.

For music you should be good, but stay away from games and programs.

Nearly everything but music on Limewire is a virus. Limewire is also tracked alot by the agencies so you are likely to get caught if you download music off there unless youre lucky.

Like programs that show weather and toolbars? If that's the case, then no.

Spyware and viruses.

And thanks. I wasn't going to use it, but I was rather curious.

The spyware and viruses are only if you arent very smart and download stuff like "songsetup.exe" or "pornvid.exe"

Don't use Limewire.

A bunch of people have been fined for using it

Yes. It also sucks quite horribly. Use bittorent and a reliable torrent source, or find someone with a big music collection and bug them for rips.

on limewire mp3s and jpegs are ok and have a low risk or containing malware. RARs and EXEs should be avoided at all costs. The network is heavily monitored by the governments/RIAA/MPAA/etc so stay away from it. Only use it if you are using someone else's network (that is if you are so desperate for CP, that seems to be the only real use of limewire; get your music off torrents/rapidshit/usenet)
once upon a midnight dreary, while i pron surfed, weak and weary, over many a strange and spurious site of ' hot  xxx galore'. While i clicked my fav'rite bookmark, suddenly there came a warning, and my heart was filled with mourning, mourning for my dear amour, " 'Tis not possible!", i muttered, " give me back my free hardcore!"..... quoth the server, 404.
